haha, so i told myself i would never show anyone this tattoo, but then i showed a few… and now i feel like sharing.
these are the coordinates of where i was trapped for a week during katrina, six years ago today. the font is called ‘hurricane.’ it’s the corner of general taylor and prytania in the garden district where a nursing home called crescent city health care still stands. it was one of the most horrifying and trying experiences i have ever and will ever experience, and it stays with me every day and continues to make me a stronger person. i hope no one ever has to be responsible for the lives of two hundred elderly patients, as myself and four other individuals were, but it’s definitely something that changes you for life. love you, nola.

    Thank you for showing us Ally. I only know a little about the hell you went through there, but I’m glad it’s made you...
